DIY Eye Cream Recipe


Benefits of Coconut Oil


  • Treats wrinkles
  • Reduces under eye bags and puffiness
  • Rich in antioxidants
  • Heals damaged skin
  • Protects aging eye skin
  • Brightens eyes
  • Heals damaged skin

Benefits of Vitamin E Oil


  • Strengthens skin around the eyes
  • Reduces dark circles
  • Prevents age spots
  • Natural skin softener
  • Maintains oil balance
  • Rich in antioxidants

How to:

  1. Melt about 4 teaspoons of coconut oil by microwaving in a microwave safe bowl for 20 seconds. Coconut oil has a low melting point of 76ºF so if the air is warmer than that, it will likely not need any melting. If your coconut oil is already in a liquid state, simply skip this step. 
  2. Combine about 2 teaspoons of vitamin E oil with the coconut oil. 
  3. Stir to combine with a toothpick or small utensil. 
  4. Transfer to your 1 ounce container.

Enjoy your new all natural and affordable eye cream day after day. This DIY eye cream can also make a wonderful gift for any woman, any time of year!
